On Monday ZyXEL Communications introduced its all-in-one LTE512x series of fixed wireless CPE (customer-premises equipment) here in the States. The gadgets deliver 4G fixed broadband Internet along with a complete range of connectivity options – Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet, VoIP ports and support for smart home services like home automation and monitoring.
"Given ZyXEL's deep heritage of innovation in 3G, Wi-Fi and WiMAX technologies, the announcement is a natural progression in the company's growth, particularly as a leader in LTE adoption," a rep told Tom's on Monday. "The series works with both the AT&T and Verizon networks bands."
The LTE512x series is designed with a high performance LTE module and a MIMO antenna array supplying up to 100 Mbps (downlink) and 50 Mbps (uplink) connectivity. The new series kicks off with the LTE5121 supporting Band 4/17 and the LTE5122 supporting Band 13.
